A Keen Eye

  1. It takes a very keen eye....

    A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she selected:
    a half-gallon of 2% milk,
    a carton of eggs,
    a quart of orange juice,
    a head of romaine lettuce,
    a 2 lb. can of coffee,
    and a 1 lb. package of bacon.

    As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a
    drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front
    of the cashier.

    While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly
    stated, "You must be single."

    The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was intrigued
    by the derelict's intuition, since she was indeed single. She looked at
    her six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her
    selections that could have tipped off the drunk to her marital status.

    Curiosity getting the better of her, she said "Well, you know what,
    you're absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?"

    The drunk replied, "Cause you're ugly."

    Guess I'm the sourpuss then . . oh well . . .

    Maybe this came too soon on the heels of a conversation with a guy who made mention that you can tell which women in a room are married and which are not. The ugly ones are not. We had a little argument . . . who determines "ugliness" and why judge so harshly and who the heck was he anyway . . NOT God's gift to women by a long shot and married . . ...

    Sorry for the chip on my shoulder. :imbar

    Certainly didn't mean to offend anyone. The punchline caught me so off gaurd that I thought it was funny. I apologize for any offense taken.
